Another little update before some of you break down my door. Which actually wouldn't be too bad as long as you use antibacterial stuff first and bring dinner.
Baby is doing just fine. She's the tiniest, fuzziest little thing. And she's a good baby. Mostly she eats and sleeps, with some cute noises thrown in between. She's not quite convinced that there's a difference between night and day just yet but she did sleep for a continuous four hours last night so that's progress.
***Warning: if you are not female and, therefore are not fully aware of the lactation procedure, you may want to skip on down to the pictures, mmmkay?***
So...nursing is fine as far as Baby is concerned. Oh, she's a natural with no problem latching on although she might wonder why Mommy's face contorts and there's some colorful language muttered under breath but hey, she's loving the whole boob concept. Me, not so much. I know its going to take some getting used to and I should just suck it up for now but - in grand Utah style - oh my flipping heck! It hurts! I nursed with both of the other kids and had the Boy give me thrush so you'd think I'd know the risks going into this. Those free samples of formula are looking better every day...
And now to distract you with some pictures! These were taken on her birthday, when the kids came to meet their new sister for the first time. She was still on oxygen at this point so she has a tube attached to her face for that purpose.
Our new family! Da boo is a little mopey because she wanted to be the one holding the baby and the Man is bent at an odd angle because he is actually protecting me (and my improved midsection) from the wiggles of the Boy. Still...its great to finally have everyone together!
The Boy isn't quite sure about this whole "new baby" thing. He's very gentle with her (when he remembers that she's around) but is more interested in what's on tv.
Da Boo on the other hand, is completely in love with Baby. Whenever I need to get something (because I forgot it in another room or dropped it on the floor), she is more than ready to help. She likes to just sit and watch Baby sleep. I'm hoping this doesn't wear off.
I took this picture the day Baby was given "well baby" status. She had her tubes removed and some cute little bows in her hair. She's opening her eyes a lot more now and just loved her pacifier. That little blue rubber miracle saves my sanity at night...
